Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I replace the pipes in my house?

The best way to replace old pipes in your house is to hire a licensed plumber to do the fix. You and the plumber can start the assessment by figuring out when your pipes were installed and if they’re in poor condition. If the plumbing in your home needs to be replaced, the plumber may need to remove drywall or ceiling materials to access the pipes and perform the job.

How long do pipes last in a house?

The lifespan of pipes in a house depends on the type of piping, according. Here’s a breakdown of how long pipes last, depending on the material: 

  • Plastic pipes (PVC, CPVC, etc.): Indefinitely
  • Copper pipes: 50+ years
  • Brass pipes: 40-70 years
  • Galvanized steel pipes: 20-50 years

What’s the best type of pipe for plumbing?

The best type of pipe for plumbing depends on your needs and concerns. For example: 

  • PVC lasts indefinitely and is easy to install.
  • PEX is easy to install and isn’t subject to corrosion.
  • Copper is durable and slightly more expensive.

Talk to your plumber about all your options, which may include other types of pipes (CPVC, polyethylene, ABS, polybutylene, etc.)

How much does it cost to install piping?

Installing piping in your home will likely cost between $450 and $1,000 per fixture. However, it’s important to always get cost estimates from plumbers so you can properly budget for this project. Several factors will drive the cost to install new plumbing in your home.

For example, the size of the house and the number of fixtures will impact costs. And the type of pipe material also has a significant impact, with copper piping being the most expensive. Piping located in difficult-to-reach areas also drives up the cost, as does wall repair and add-ons like water softeners.

How often does plumbing need to be replaced?

How often your plumbing needs to be replaced depends on several factors, but the primary one is the type of piping installed in your house. Different materials (copper, steel, plastic, etc.) have different lifespans. How well you treat your piping also affects how often it needs to be replaced. 

Here are additional signs you may need to replace your piping:

  • Your pipes need constant repairs and attention
  • There are signs of water decay, discoloration and leaks
  • Your drains lines endured damage from tree roots or severe weather
  • You’re remodeling your home

When in doubt, always ask a plumber for their expert opinion.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a plumber during the COVID-19 pandemic?

If possible, it’s best to set up a virtual consultation or phone call with a plumber near during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can send a message to a professional plumber near you and ask if they are available to video chat or have a phone call. Use that time to discuss the work that needs to be done. Make sure to ask any questions you have about the project. And lastly, ask the plumber how they handle payments and whether they have any specific safety precautions in place to comply with social distancing. 

How can I find out if a plumber is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Generally, plumbers are often considered essential service providers. Essential service providers vary from state to state and city to city, however. For the most accurate information, check your official state or city government website to see whether a plumber is considered an essential service in your area.

Read CISA’s publication on identifying critical workers to find out more information on a national level. Some, but not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a plumber when social distancing?

Contact plumbers near you beforehand to see if they can complete the project without entering your home — for example, by entering the garage to fix a broken water heater. If the plumber needs to enter your house to do the job, you should proceed only if both parties feel comfortable with the project. Consider taking extra steps such as waving instead of shaking hands, staying 6 feet apart, using digital payments and sanitizing common areas.

Can I use digital payments to pay for plumbing services?

Some plumbers accept digital payments -- Zelle, PayPal, Venmo, etc. -- for their services. Before you hire a plumber, ask them if they accept your preferred online payment. Many also feature digital payment options on their profiles. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, digital payments are typically considered safer than cash and credit cards.

Does a plumber need to enter my home?

A plumber will need to enter your home to fix plumbing issues like dripping faucets, clogged sinks or toilets and leaky pipes. They might not need to come into your home if the faulty appliance is located outdoors or in the garage. Before you begin the project, contact plumbers near you to find out they will need to enter your home.

Benjamin arrived on time, explain I might need to change the main pipe with a new one and gave a quote for $1700, I said it was too expensive and I won't be able to do it and then gave me an alternative offer - to patch the hole in the pipe for much less, I agreed to that and the problem seemed to be solved for now. He did a GOOD JOB and completed it ON TIME agreed. I got another quote from him for replacing a faucet, I didn't because I thought it was too expensive. In general, Ben is defiantly not the cheapest between Atlanta's plumbers but I think you can defiantly TRUST him to do GREAT PROFESSIONAL WORK for you.

Out $225. Great workmanship. But saga continues with trying to find someone qualified to fix this thing. Still leaks probably due to a faulty device. Which probably couldve have been pointed out before the plumber started taping threads & glueing pipes and expecting pay for NOT resolving the issue.

David is responsive and he came out to help fix a clogged washer pipe quickly after I contacted him. After the first service the problem didn’t get fixed completely but David came out again the second time to check the issue and tackled it right away. Will hire him again!

We scheduled and they fixed everything in about an hour, maybe less. They installed a sink support system we purchased and replaced a damaged pipe. The price was in our budget and no problems since they left. They were running late by a few hours but were in contact with us in advance. Great service and we would recommend them

Maurice replaced the leaking pipe we had in our bathroom, repaired the sheetrock and patched the popcorn ceiling for a surprisingly low price. There's nothing he can't do! He did a great job and we would definitely hire him again. Thumbtack should fix their distance matching because he lived on the other side of Atlanta and he still made the drive several times to complete the job. Very happy!

Phil is a professional commutator and a great plumber. His prices are very competitive and he is easy to work with. We ran into some significant problems with the county while replacing a sewer pipe. Despite a stressful situation, Phil handled several unexpected events with professionalism and confidence, explaining things clearly, and making me feel cared for the whole time. I will be using PNG the next time I need a plumber and would highly recommend. Thanks Phil!

Excellent service all round! Speedy reply and coming out to see scope of work. Initial examination and finding small leaks I was not aware of. Instant replacing of pressure meter and inspection of water heaters. Brandon and Tony was very courteous and informative and promt in all aspects of getting thugs done. Replaced our main water line yesterday and again very careful with our trees and plants and laying the poly pipe and connecting everything and flushing out the water tank. Definitely my go to plumbers for anything in the future. Thank you Brandon and Tony! Much appreciated.

10/10! Absolutely amazing experience from start to finish. I had a water main break under my sidewalk, which cut off water to my home and flooded my yard. Within hours, Phil neatly cut through the concrete, dug a narrow trench through the yard, and laid replacement piping from the water meter to my home. The job done with quality precision; better yet, everything was done in half the time that it would take most plumbers. I will 100% be using P and G Plumbing for any future repairs and renovations.

Val was absolutely amazing. He was able to locate the leak from my shower pipe immediately! He went to the hardware store and purchased the new part for me and installed it all in the same hour. He even purchased new shower head options for my master while he was out because I mentioned through casual conversation that I didn't care for the one I had. He added it his quote and installed it. He didn't make a big mess or cut a huge hole like other plumbers. Val was very professional and honest and i would highly recommend his work.

CJ arrived within the arranged time frame and sent a courtesy text when he was on the way. He was extremely professional and did not seem bothered as I asked him questions pertaining to the process. Our appointment was for him to change the gas valve for my stove. Upon completing the project, I asked him if he could look at my garbage disposal because it was giving me issues. He gladly inspected it and even pointed out a pipe issue with my dishwasher connection. His prices are extremely reasonable. I have several rental properties, and I definitely will be working with him again.
